Emergency Notifications

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District Emergency Notification System

The system, InformaCast©, provides alerts about emergency situations on campus by way of SMS, land line, cell phone, email, classroom desktop computers, and the mobile app.

All current Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District students, staff (those enrolled in current semester or summer session), and faculty may have alert messages sent to one or multiple devices based on the situation and your user profile. We encourage you to add your cell phone number at a minimum, via the mobile app, so you can receive messages in the most expedient manner.

Staff and faculty should review their contact information in Workday, and if necessary update, to ensure it is correct.
